yapceu07 summary

best talks: Damian Conway was very often cited with the input of physical theories to Perl code. It's a huge fun to watch how quickly geeks can fill a fleet of buses. It seems most still lean towards Perl 5 as the process was quite stack based with a _very_ full head and an almost empty tail. :) The Weingut Schilling owners have a good variety of white wines. They run soon out of beer and proposed instead Schnaps.

The third day finished with the traditional auction. For non-native speakers it took some time to see what was going on. domm invited for a very nice after conf party.

Anyway thanks to all visitors for coming. You made this Yapc lively. I'm very proud reading statements on irc "it was the greatest ever :>".

The YAPC::Europe 2007 in Vienna is quite happy to announce that almost all the announced people registered succesfuly this morning (Funny batch processing of quite some peoples). We could give away some goodies by various sponors. All the orga team members came in this morning with orange tomahawk!?!

The talks are on going, schedule got some last minute updates. Cog gave us a fun keynote on how to socialize in order to get most out of a YAPC. Larry Wall gave his current vision on scripting languages. Matt Trout had a full audience for an enthusiatic talk about the community around DBIx::Class. Hackathons are ongoing and domm is preparing videos of the welcome night. The Selenium talk by Barbie got high prise. gwolf did a very good presentation about the challenges of the Debian Perl group. So the first day looks like a win and we are happy to see how it will go on.. :)

austrian perl workshop 2005

The Austrian Perl Workshop was a great success. There were very interesting talks about Perl use in general, the Pugs present and the Perl 6 furture. The ambiance was very professional -a bit nerdier than last years apw.

The T-Shirt Design is great. Really like to wear it my shiny red thing. It rained for the dinner, so we couldn't stay outside. Anyway breakfast and lunch was delicious. Only the coffe was particular bad.

Thanks domm for the organisation!

06:49 AM TechMeet résumé

below you'll find a resumé of yesterdays TechMeet,
it's quick typed in middle of the presentations,
so do not expect to much Kwalitee
feel free to add any omissions or to correct me

thx to domm for the organisation
special thx for their presence belongs to
Michael G. Schwern and David "cogent" Hand
a pleasure to meet you all

* domm (Thomas Klausner) : CPANTS - CPAN Testing Service
* maks (Maximilian Attems) : vacherie - language learning tool
* leo (Leopold Tötsch) : parrot
* Wilhelm Nagy : xedm
* Matthias**2 (Matthias Tarasiewicz, Matthias Subik) :
    fs2 - multimedia p2p +database
* Lucas Czjzek: mmm - Moving Media Multiplicator

domm starts with cpants
the basic idea is to test cpan modules
after catching ownership he did the obvious:
there exists a completly rewroten cpants
cpants has to analyse sourcecode
because code would probably not compile
(os, required modules, missing c libraries, ..)
-> parse perl -> cpanratings -> database
not yet decided on how to calculate qualiity
(Makefile, symlinks, ..)

me continues with vacherie
a nice tool for learning another language,
javascript and interface feeded by a perl
script which chooses random vocabularies
the database is feeded by individual chosen entries
quite a nice sunday afternoon hack .. hope so

leo introduces parrot
parrot is the new virtual machine Perl6 will be based on
parrot iternals based on registers
(Integer, double float, Strings, PMC)
PMC = Parrot Magic Cookies kind of low level objects
~1200 opcodes for all sort of operations (addition + ..)
parrot uses 3-register machine - garbage collection
leo shows some nice benchmarks
resume: parrot is fast, sometimes 30x faster than perl 5
great final with old mandelbrot c
ponie wants to run in 2 years, pie-thon next year for oscon
latest parrot 0.11 contains lots of new stuff:
can translate files in native executables like elf
continuation style calling convention
(subroutine return continuation ..
restores stacks that subroutine may have changed ..
you can jump in also in this subrout ine)
the slide where of course done in Parrot!!!
unicode + regex engine + perl parser may need some help

wilhelm likes kobol for xedm but runs after his shirt
and may hand you over some cute proprietary browsers
his application is for governement and subsidiaries
it can run on a usb stick, and is very easy to install
contains mysql, active state perl (cgi+ dbi + blowfish),
modified tinyweb, gui (html + css) looks like acces
(!befuddle clerks)
can control and start any process like vi or m$ excel
xedm has 100 users, specification will also be used in eu
tab seperated with left column controll statements (inserts,
deletes) .. human readable and machine readable format for excel
programmer uses meta objects .. he just configure it
further talks planned on the database .. project managment
programm was intertroduced yesterday

matthias**2 presents fs2 a metamedia p2p sequencing database
main approach contrasts the googlish popularity approach
important to have a look at rare content
metainformation decentralised shall permit distributed media
using pointers to the underground stuff
interlink media content not anonymosly
taking the best out of the internet infrastructure
kind of distributed wiki
media type recognition done in perl my cpan modules:
Digest::MD5, Video::Info; XML::RSS
mailinglist and sourceforge link will be posted soon.
